Infanta Isabel, 4
You must only travel two kilometers north of the city center to feel as if you’ve been transported to another world entirely. One of the most prestigious restaurants in Barcelona, La Balsa is perched atop the circular tower of a former cistern on an old watering pond. Wide windows and two magnificent terraces allow for views of the entire city below, and offer a rare dining experience in the middle of the city, with lush vegetation, wood beamed ceilings, white canopies and tile floors evoking a sense of the Spanish countryside. Imaginative starters, traditional stews, prime selected meat and fish, and exquisite desserts comprise the menu of Basque, Catalan and international specialties.
